This paper focuses on the main drivers of the distribution of the Rural Development Policy's expenditure throughout the EU. Ex-post funds distribution across EU NUTS3 regions is considered. Three effects are admitted as major drivers: the "country effect"; the "rural effect" (i.e., the more rural a region the larger the amount of support it is expected to receive); the "pure spatial effect" (i.e. the influence of bordering regions and, in particular, of their degree of rurality). These effects are estimated adopting alternative spatial model specifications: spatial Durbin model, SEM and SAR model. Results differ across alternative specifications and definitions of rurality, but the prevalent evidence suggests that rurality matters in a counterintuitive direction, while also neighbouring regions play a role.
